Trump yet to concede, as Biden wins elections

Over the weekend, the name of the next President of the United States of America was finally revealed. Joe Biden reigned supreme, as U.S. television networks and the Associated Press called the election for the Democratic candidate as he reached the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure the White House.

Since the outcome was announced, leaders from all over the world began congratulating Biden, apart from the incumbent President and notably the leaders of Brazil, China and Russia.

The President sent several tweets over the weekend, re-affirming his beliefs, with one reading, “I won this election by a lot!” adding, “71,000,000 Legal Votes. The most EVER for a sitting President!”. Many now expect a battle in the U.S. courts to ensue, with Trump contesting the legitimacy of Biden’s victory.
